Holding Steady

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas break. I can't believe it is almost 2008. Time is going so fast.

Our appointment went well on Thursday. Liviana looks great as usual. Her fluid level has not increased and has actually dropped from 25 to 22. The doctor said that was pretty much the same to him but to me it is huge. We had another non-stress test which seemed to be cut short because she is doing so wonderfully. I'm really not worried about her while I am carrying her (ok, maybe a little). It is after she is born that her fight begins.

She is so active. She always has her feet pushed up high and hard. I don't ever mind it though. I just don't have any pregnancy complaints. I am just as active as I was before and if not more sometimes. I'm waiting for the inevitable sign of obsessive cleaning that signals that she will soon arrive. The night before I had Miles I was standing on the couch vacuuming the ceiling fan. We are all on the lookout for similar signs.

I am now 35 weeks, which seems almost surreal. We are in the home stretch which is increasing my anxiety a little. I am practicing my Hypnobabies like I did with Miles (Thank you Susan!) which is helping with my anxiety. I have great trust in the doctors here and I am remaining 100% optimistic.

Brad starts his second job on the 1st managing properties and hopefully his regular job will pick up again after the first of the year. He is wrapping up his bathroom remodel which turned into a much bigger job after they started and decided they wanted to knock out walls and expand the bathroom all together.

I think that is all for now. We have our next appointment next Thursday so I will update more then. We switched our cell phones over to Nebraska numbers so I will be sending that out to everyone. I am also going to put together an e-mail list to notify everyone when the big moment arrives and I go into labor. Hopefully, that is about 4 weeks away but you never know.

Please keep Cadenne in your prayers. She underwent her surgery today so she needs extra thoughts and prayers right now. You can follow her story at the link to the right.

That's great that your fluid levels went down. And I am laughing about you vacuuming the ceiling fan!
